NZIA Auckland Architecture Awards – Housing – Easterbrook

Judges Comment – Modest in its aspirations, dimensions and budget, this small house for a family of four, nestled in a Titirangi bush glade, is a delight. Every aspect of the house works hard to offer storage, purpose, comfort, sun and surprise. From the window seats in the childrens’ bedroom and the diminutive bathroom that still holds room for a claw-foot bath, to the immaculate cabinetry and the artful pings of colour, it is a carefully controlled and considered exercise which has yielded an airy, playful, entirely relaxed and quite joyful outcome.
